Re: Genre/Gender

Female, middle-aged, wide-ranging and eclectic reading tastes. Right now reading non-fiction science (astrobiology, discovery of exoplanets, basic biology, genetics, aging/death/life extension, to name a few) for research for my science fiction. And some "how to write science fiction" books, too. Ev...

Re: The Big Bang Theory (TV show)

I only found out about the show this year but I've caught up on most back episodes via reruns on Fox or my friend's DVD season sets. Love the nerd humor. :batman: Sheldon is Batman and don't you dare sit in his SPOT! :sofa:

Re: Any Catholic Science Fiction readers/writers here?

Thanks Sancta Futura, for the link; it was very interesting. :) I must confess I haven't seen any of the "Alien" movies because they seemed too much in the horror genre and I thought they'd be too scary :shock: but I may need to go back and watch them now and then Prometheus. This dovetails in a str...

Re: Any Catholic Science Fiction readers/writers here?

Hi - I'm back - Asp and Sancta both make points that have definitely crossed my mind as I plan the "theo-history" (?) of my alien race.In one way or another most all science fiction addresses human ethical dilemmas (good vs. evil, free will/determinism, etc.) regardless of what religious or spiritua...

Re: Any Catholic Science Fiction readers/writers here?

Hi again, SanctaFutura! My novel is based on the following premise - aliens who went so far as to develop interstellar travel without having committed Original Sin. They would have evolved and gone through a pre-ensouled period of time, where their competitive or aggressive acts didn't "count agains...

Did Science Fiction Predict This?

This is a thread like the one about "Science Fiction Predictions That Came True" only with a slightly different twist. Think of some technology that science fiction writers didn't come up with but that is now in common use: Touchscreens is one that comes to mind. Apparently the history of their exis...

Re: Any Catholic Science Fiction readers/writers here?

Oh, yay! This thread lives! :cheers: Nice to make your acquaintance, SanctaFutura! I'm plugging away on my Catholic-themed NaNoWriMo science fiction novel. I got pretty behind, so don't know if I'll make the 50,000 word goal by November 30th or not. I've been to the scificatholic blog and I do like ...

Re: Anyone doing NaNoWriMo?

So how are things going with NaNo Science Fiction, anyone? :) Mine is slow - November is never a good month - I did better with August Camp NaNoWriMo. That was a more "mainstream fiction" manuscript. But I set it aside and took September and October to gear up for this month - did lots of scientific...

Re: I think I want aliens that are sort of humanoid in my no

I think I'm getting my aliens close to the form I want them to be. :alien: (Not like this fellow, LOL!) My inspiration came from a head-on picture of a chick embryo, of all things. I wanted the aliens to be sort of appealing - almost cute but not silly-cute. Anyway, when I took the chick embryo pict...

Re: Anyone doing NaNoWriMo?

Are you doing the tech manual for your NaNoWriMo? As a NaNo Rebel? :mrgreen: Or that and a NaNo novel separately?
